About Foreword

Since 1998, Foreword has been the only review publication exclusively reviewing books from independent and university presses. In print and online, the readership consists of a loyal community of librarians, booksellers, and industry professionals who understand the importance of a vibrant indie press and rely on Foreword as a great source of trustworthy book reviews.

You’re an indie author or publisher, and you have a new book at the printer. It’s beautiful, polished, ready for the eyes of the world, and you’re looking to get it out there for readers to fall in love with. Your first stop is here with Foreword ReviewsForeword offers beautifully written, objective reviews of indie books, and we’ve been doing it for a readership of librarians, booksellers, and book lovers for over 20 years. Along with flawless credibility and fantastic reach, earning a Foreword book review gives indie authors and publishers more meat on the bone and buzz in the air for publicity campaigns. We have the research to prove that book industry professionals and general readers buy books based on a review in Foreword.

You’ve published a book and now realize that it’s hard to get noticed in this overcrowded publishing space. You’ve researched “how to get a book reviewed,” but you also want more than a capsule summary. You want a professionally written, objective review with some major credibility. Oh, and you not only want to reach an audience of readers but also reach the influencers, connectors, mavens, and salespeople who can quickly get your book in the right hands.

What you get:

  • Clarion Review

Clarion Reviews give authors and readers a comprehensive critique of the writing, plot, pacing, characters, packaging, and other elements that will influence potential book buyers. The reader will not only know what the book is about, they will get a complete analysis from a professional writer who specializes in specific fields of study (book genres). Your book will be rated with one to five stars based on excellence.
